Attending HQ's concert last Saturday brought me back to the days when he first started school at 3 years old. We enrolled him to school in June 2008. He was so eager to start school then, and he managed on his own without tears even on his first day of school. I'm so proud of him :-).
This video was recorded on his first school concert when he was 3 years old. He did a solo song performance in Mandarin, which hubby had recorded for me and QQ to view in the hospital. QQ was hospitalised for pneumonia and bronchitis at that time, and we were not able to attend HQ's first school concert.
He was the only 3-year-old kid performing solo among other 6-year-olds. When we asked him why he stopped for a little while in the middle of his song, he said because he saw his Papa amongst the crowd. I can imagine how nervous he was on that stage, and how he missed his mama after 3 days not seeing me. Everytime I watch this video, it brings tears to my eyes. Eventhough he halted for a little while, I am so proud of him that he did not make a dash for his Papa, but instead stood firmly on his feet and finished his song performance.
There is never a day that I'm not proud of you, my son :')
